In this episode, we’re talking about ISO — certifications, compliance, and how to determine whether your organization needs a full certification, compliance, or something in between.

Join us along with Mike Gentile and our first guest! Calling in from Baltimore, we’re excited to have Juliana Wood, Director of Certifications at CIRQ, the Certification Institute for Research Quality. They’ll be sharing their insights and experiences with ISO from the perspective of a certification body and the perspective of someone who has helped companies prepare for the certification process.

ISO, known globally as the International Organization for Standardization, has over 163 verticals for standards in different areas and industries. We discuss ISO 27001, as well as the common reasons that companies seek certification.

Mike and Juliana provide valuable insight on where certifications are going in the future of security and businesses. We’ll go over the pros and cons of pursuing certifications, and the best ways to start the process for ISO.
